Le Prince Maurice leads on latest trend for medical pedicures

A growing trend among spa guests for medical-based treatments shows a greater emphasis on spas as places for wellbeing rather than indulgence.

One area where we’ve seen this shift is in the rise of medical pedicures. At the centre of this trend is celebrity podiatrist Brice Nicham, whose medical health pedicures, manicures and posture treatments are available at Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius.

Brice Nicham says, ‘My goal is to democratise these types of qualitative treatments around the world and within 5 stars hotels by providing an unparalleled result with a simple pedicure. Some VIPs such as Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria, John Travolta and Bradley Cooper have already tried my pedicure and loved it!’

Available at Constance Le Prince Maurice’s Spa de Constance, Nicham’s program combines medical treatments for feet and hands alongside massage and traditional beauty techniques.

How it works

The idea behind Nicham’s medical pedicures is not only to cure current conditions but to prevent potential future foot issues through a series of efficient and relaxing treatments.

As part of the medical approach, Nicham’s pedicures and manicures include treatment for skin and nail pathologies such as corns, calluses and ingrowing nails as well as an elimination of the rough periungual zones around the fingernails.

In order to create a holistic feeling of wellbeing clients are then given an invigorating scrub followed by a massage of the region (toe to knee for a pedicure, hand to elbow for a manicure) to relieve stress and improve blood circulation.

Nicham’s approach, and the treatments he has created, has earned him a loyal following.

In an attempt to cure a range of possible strains on key joints, Nicham also offers a postural check-up system already used by many football clubs and tennis leagues around the world.

Having garnered a loyal following among celebrities, sports teams and those looking for treatments that really deliver, Brice’s treatments are now available at Le Prince Maurice.

Here are Brice’s top 3 tips for 2013:

1. Health

Take good care of your feet all year long and not only summertime when you show them. Having a medical pedicure at least 3 times a year will help you treat painful or esthetical issues. It’s the ideal way to get beautiful and healthy feet all year long, and also to prevent and anticipate issues.

2. Beauty

In our treatment room, we offer you a huge range of nail polishes and long lasting nail polishes. In order to optimise the durability of your nail polish and prevent you from nail damage, it is important you also come and visit us for nail polishing treatment in 3 steps.

3. Well being

Massage your hands and feet every night before going to sleep with a nourishing balm for at least 15 minutes. A long massage will help the cream to penetrate and provide your skin with all its benefits.
